Room 35 is next to the bathroom which needs a timer on the light/fan switch, the noise woke me twice! I had to get out of bed, twice, and turn off the light/fan as the person using the bathroom at 2am left the light/fan on! No fan and Sacramento is HOT in the summer - you need a fan to circulate the air as there is no cross breeze. I used a rock found in the common areas to "prop" the window open. The window is old, won't stay open, so you need to provide a window prop.

Attraction tip

Old town- but most places seemed to close around 5/6, so be sure to check out before dinner!
